The Syrian Electronic Army hackers loyal to Syrian President Bahar Ul Assad reportedly hacked Reuters (http://www.reuters.com/), the International news organization.
Earlier today, anyone trying to visit Reuters website was redirected to Syrian Electronic Armyâ€™s official website sea.sy with a message.
â€˜â€™Hacked by Syrian Electronic Army! Stop publishing fake reports and false articles about Syria. UK government is supporting the terrorists in Syria to destroy it, Stop spreading its propaganda.â€™â€™
According to a conversation with a member of SEA, I was told that Reuterâ€™s website wasn’t directly hacked in this attack. Instead, Taboola a third-party ad provider -which is used by Reuters to display adverts was actually compromised.
This is not the first time when SEA has hacked a third party service to harm main party. Last week The Sunday Timeâ€™s website was also redirected to their own website.
In 2013, hackers managed to hack Outbrain and redirect WashingtonPost and CNNâ€™s website to Sea.sy.
At the time of publishing this article, the Reuters website was working without any redirection.
